  1. I got the parts back from the anodizer the other day. Here's how they turned out: Here's how the Dual Action works - on the left (the 6-string tremolo) you will note that there are two positions for the bearing and shaft. This allows you to change the behavior of the tremolo from stiff and extreme to smooth and subtle. The 7-string tremolo on the right has only one bearing due to the extra force applied from the string tension.
  2. My guess would be for a radiused string height, like a TOM-bridge has.. @Cactus - you're right. It has a 16" radius. Previous revisions of the trems had "steps" and equally deep grooves, but I think this looks better. Note that each string has individual height adjustment as well.
  3. I am indeed planning on selling these! I have been looking for an alternative to knife edges for a long time and have been sold out of the regular tremolos, not wanting to commit to ordering new parts, so am very pleased to arrive here.
  4. So, here's a completely different kind of build - hopefully to the general interest! I have spent the weekend at the mill and lathe constructing a new headless tremolo. 6 mm aluminium to begin with. I am doing a 6-string and a 7-string in parallel, which is the reason for the two different size pieces. Here, I have routed the grooves that the tuners will sit in (on the 7-string) The two base plates, almost finished Plates completed This is what brings it all together Almost there... And assembled! What's interesting with this tremolo is that it is based on needle bearings and has two options for fulcrum points. One give more extreme action and the other is much smoother. More pictures will follow! I am sending them away for engraving of logo and then anodization.

  7. If you live in the San Antonio, TX area and want to try #3, give me a shout! I am there between today (10/10/10) and (10/13/10).
  8. I have created a step-by-step guide on how to plan and build your very own Strandberg Guitarworks EGS guitar. http://guitarworks.thestrandbergs.com/2010...diy-egs-guitar/
  9. Hehe... it started as an 8-string thread but evolved into just a 7. Sorry to disappoint :-)
  10. They are the P-90s. I have been curious about the Bass Tone Bars, but they seem hard to find, at least when I tried.
  11. It's done! Will post more when I have caught my breath. In the meantime, there are plenty of pictures on my facebook page.
  12. Done! Many, many more pictures on my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/strandbergGuitarworks Will post the full specs when I have caught my breath....
